is there a big difference between the wallis museum and wallis professional?
also I am doing a black and white work, what color of paper do you think is best for this work? I am thinking a medium grey?

The difference is in the weight and archival length of the papers. And it only comes in white or Belgian Mist which is a medium brown. If you are doing black and white I would guess that the white paper would be what you want.

I also know the Museum grade which is more expensive doesn't warp when went and then dried. it dries flat!

It's the same texture applied to different backing papers. The actual 'feel' of the grit is the same, but the different backings have varying characteristics.

I think the Belgian Mist would be good for grayscale (or 3-value) studies, but the white if you're sticking strictly to black and white.
